What an amazing event that was. Jon and Lindsay decided little over a month ago to get married, and to do so on a remote island off the Sunshine Coast of BC. I've been hearing about this magical island for a few years from Chuck, Jon's brother and my good friend. It lived up to all the hype. It was an insanely gorgeous weekend of unusually warm and sunny weather, wonderful family and hilarious friends, boat rides and skinny dips, live music and delicious food, ferns and cedars, and most importantly, love love love.
Jon sported his grandfather's top hat. Very dapper.
There are very few vehicles on Savary, at least at this time of year. Guests got from place to place by trails through the woods, on foot, on bike, in Gators, and in the back of trucks. Every effort was made to ensure said truck beds were comfy and warm.
Lindsay took a few moments before the ceremony to soak in the sunshine before heading off to the tiny little chapel in the trees. It was warm and glorious, and felt more like July than October.
The bouquet was handmade by the bride herself. She combined vintage button and beautiful printed papers with handwritten notes that Jon had left for her over the years.
The tiny little church on Savary holds maybe 30 people comfortably. Jon and Lindsay managed to make room for 80, and the energy was rich and warm as a result.
The Gator was the chariot of choice for the newlyweds. They rallied back and forth in front of the church a couple of times, much to the crowds delight.
